Show Notes July 7, 2018 EP 130b

This is Part Two of a great interview with my friend Alejandro Seri from Final Draft

The mic quality isn’t wonderful; I should have just taken the sound directly off the mixing board but I used Zoom instead. 

The more I use Zoom, the more I find problems but it is a great resource in many ways so I just need to work around its limitations and fix things on my end.
